ZEALOTRY Users: Critical Notice on Continued Use

Edit: Our new HTML5 client (Orchil) is now open for beta testing in The Eternal City. Feel free to try give it a whirl at http://test.skotos.net/orchil/

Edit: We have made great strides toward a new HTML5 client, which should offer a replacement to Zealotry. We're hoping to release that in the very near future, but in the meantime, using Pale Moon remains the best method for ensuring there is zero interruption to your game playing during the transition.

As of November 14, Mozilla will be auto-updating all copies of Mozilla Firefox to Mozilla 57, a new edition of their browser that will disable all legacy add-ons. This will probably include the majority of the plug-ins that you use on Mozilla, including the Skotos Zealotry plug-in.

This is a big problem for us because Zealotry is the most stable of our clients at this time, and the one that we believe is in the widest use. There's unfortunately no easy way to update it, because we'd have to rewrite it from practically scratch, using their new programming system.

There are tricks that you could use to to prevent Mozilla updates, but we don't particularly suggest them, as you want to have a clean, secure browser. Fortunately, there are two alternative browsers that will support Zealotry. Each of them branched off of an earlier version of Mozilla Firefox, and each of them continues to be updated for important security issues.

Pale Moon Browser

The Pale Moon browser is our suggested replacement. It is a totally separate browser that branched off of Firefox some years ago. It will continue to support the classic plug-ins.

To install it:
  • Install Pale Moon (Windows & UNIX only)
  • Install the Zealotry XPI on Pale Moon
  • Restart the Pale Moon Browser
  • Play on Pale Moon

The official version of Pale Moon only supports Windows and UNIX, but you can also get a slightly less official version of Pale Moon for the Mac. We've tested it out and it looks like it's clean and works correctly, but use your own level of caution in working with the Mac variant.

If You Have Errors

Some users are experiencing "Content Encoding Errors" when using Pale Moon and Zealotry. As best we can tell, this is due to an incompatibility between Windows 8.1, Pale Moon, and Plugins. If you have this problem (or any other), we suggest instead using Mozilla's extended-release version of Firefox, which branched at Firefox 52. It's expected to remain supported until at least June 28, 2018, by which time Mozilla is planning to jump their ESR to a post-plugin phase. This is therefore a short-term solution, but we expect to have full release of our New HTML5 client well before that.

To install it:
The Big Picture

Our larger-scale goal is to introduce a new client that will be usable on any browser and make our games generally more accessible. We've had a HTML5 client in process since last year, but are currently hitting roadblocks that make a deployment before November 14 problematic. We've also just started a second project, which would be more specifically focused as a Zealotry replacement, without worries about new bells or new whistles. Both of these possibilities are being done out-of-house, by Skotos players, but they're receiving our highest level of attention for whatever support they need, as this is all our top priority.

So, consider this a short-term fix, but in the meantime if you use Zealotry, please download one of the alternative browsers and test them out ASAP.

    I'm way too lazy to go find and then bump the old thread, so...

    What are you listening to right now?

    Me? Nas' Illmatic. The whole album. I heard his new single, "The Don" because Spotify thought it'd be a good suggestion for me and I nearly barfed. WTB old (Jay-Z hating) Nas, please!

    Here you go, this is "NY State of Mind" (pt. 1)

    I think it's fun to play a character as lovable as Deft while listening to music like that.

        Oh, man. I guess it's 90's rap night:

        I be hectic and comin' for the headpiece, protect it!

        And, Insigniared, I wore my Dimmu Borgir shirt around the other day. (I've had it for like, 10 years now.) I hate that it got bleach stained. I rock it still, regardless!

          His 2008 untitled album was the only other one of his that I really got into.

          For whatever white-suburban reason I'm more into the whole 'political' rap albums like Pac's Don Killuminati than the typical rap songs.

          Eminem's still probably the most played artist on my iPod right now, with possibly the exception of one singer whom I'm too embarrassed to admit. (And I'm happy to admit that I'm Chinese raised in a nice suburb who listens to Tupac)

            Oh, I definitely am not into the whole mainstream rap stuff, I guess, with the exception of a couple artists. Want a good flow? Chino XL. He even penned a song called, "Wordsmith" and he is exactly that.

            I'm in LOVE with Immortal Technique. Ahem. (Physically, too. Aw yeah.) KRS One is great, too, if you like political/social rap. And, I guess, I do enjoy a lot of rap from the 90s; Mystikal, Method Man, Biggie, Big Pun ...

            But this shit nowadays! Gawd. There's this guy my mom's friends with and he always tells me how Nikki Minaj is the best rapper in Young Money. I had to just sit there and guffaw; seriously - she rhymes in the WORST couplets that don't flow because they don't make god damn sense! ARGH.

            And, I think it's okay to like Eminem. His flow and stylistic approach are things I really can truly appreciate.

            You should confide to me who the singer is that you're too embarrassed to admit is on your iPod, xiaozh... It'd be good to get it off your chest. Here, I'll tell you one of my guilty pleasures: "E.T." by Katy Perry. Over and over again! Granted, it has some sentimental value to it; these two boys that used to roll through the pharmacy drive-thru window with their MILF of a momma sang it to me one night after football practice. But still. Katy Perry. Gah. That is not facilitating the badass image I wish to maintain.

            (And I'm happy to admit I am a white girl raised in a nice suburb that listens to all of the above and more. 8) )

            God dammit, I can't quit editing. The other album of Nas' that I enjoy a great deal is "I Am..."

            Nas is Like: "I'm a poor man's dream, a thug poet: Live it, and I write down and I watch it blow up, y'all know what I'm like, y'all play it your system every night."

              I can't put a finger on what it is exactly that turns me off from new rap, but even the rappers I've always liked, their new albums don't appeal to me as much as their old ones did. Maybe it's just me cause "Recovery" was a great album, but it just doesn't have that sentimental draw like "Slim Shady LP" or "Marshal Mathers."

              I'm just waiting for the next Tupac album to come out.

                Yeah. Nothing spectacular has really come out. E-40's new single isn't bad, but even then ...

                Maybe we're just getting old!

                      Currently, I'm listening to a fussing child and an overwhelming silence where thoughts should be. Whoa.
